Kaia Gerber shared a lovely tribute for her mum Cindy Crawford, who celebrated her 55th birthday on February 20.
To make Crawford’s day special, Kaia penned a beautiful message for her and even shared several rare photos of her on her Instagram Stories. “Happy birthday beautiful mama,” the 19-year-old wrote alongside a throwback photo of Crawford.
“To the person who always makes me do a double take, the woman who gets more beautiful every year, and the mother I can only hope to be like one day,” she added. “I love you.”
Gerber then took to her Instagram Stories to share some more glamorous pictures of “super mom” Crawford. She posted several throwback snaps, one from when Cindy Crawford was a teenager.
Another photo saw Crawford looking chic as ever as she wore a leather coat over a skirt. “Style twin,” Kaia Gerber captioned it.
While the posting spree certainly made fans realize what a diva Crawford is, one couldn’t help but notice the uncanny resemblance between her and Kaia!
Kaia Gerber on being compared to her mother Cindy Crawford
In an essay for Vogue‘s November 2019 issue, Kaia wrote that being compared to her mother feels like “the biggest compliment” to her.
“From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom,” she wrote. “As I get older, it happens even more, and it’s not just a visual thing: It’s everything from our mannerisms to our voices.”
“The biggest compliment is when someone says I act like my mom,” she added. “Beyond her beauty and obvious appeal, she has always been my hero and my role model because of the way she treats people and the lens that she sees the world through, and that’s something for which I’m beyond grateful.”

For her birthday this year, Cindy Crawford opted for a low-key celebration, going out for lunch with her husband, Rande Gerber, and daughter, Kaia Gerber.
The trio were photographed as they went on a walk. They stopped for coffee and then met up with some friends to grab lunch.
Crawford looked sporty as she wore a white top, black leggings and sneakers. Kaia donned a similar ensemble, wearing leggings, a ribbed orange top and flip-flops.
